Is the away terrace not open for this?

 

Most likely going to go but would prefer to stand with the other Cat fans

It's never open when the Dragons come to town.  Any Dragons fans that do turn up go in the seated section in the North Stand nearest to the away end because that's generally empty as home fans want seats nearer other home fans.  That section is unreserved seating so you could sit with the Dragons fans if you ask for a seat in that section.

How many are Saints missing? I know of Lomax, Wilkin and Walsh that are out for the season, is there anyone else injured?

McDonnell, who was supposed to be our stand in fullback (he has more pace than Wello if nothing else!).  Broken jaw.

 

Our big numbers were mid season but the three players you mention are our key ball players and play makers.  We only have Robes left who fits that bill now, although Turner is doing pretty well as a makeshift 6/7/13/63.

I think it could go either way. Cats are in great form and have a great structure to their play which has shown itself to be robust under terrific pressure over the last 2 weeks. Saints meanwhile have had one decent win in recent weeks and that was against a Cas side which never left the bus after their Cup exertions took their toll. I don't think that Saints will be able to win the game from acting half scoots and well recall the manner in which a Cats took them apart in Perpignan.
There is probably enough in Saints' favour - home ground, likely favourable ref, well rested and probably better forwards - to see them home. But, were this at Cats ground I would have no hesitation in backing them.
Should be another Thursday night thriller.

We may also remember how we beat the Dragons at home earlier in the year!

 

Other than that, I'm sayin nothin


In Topic: Casty back at the Dragons

That didn't seem to be the gist at all. He was offered 4 years by the Dragons and that was an offer too good to turn down.

 

Looks like the same thing to me!  If he'd been happy down under he wouldn't have found the four year deal too good to turn down.  I'm sure if Saints offered James Graham a million quid and a luxury mansion he still wouldn't return!

My French fizzled out soon after I left school but I think the gist of the article was that Casty wasn't too happy down under and wanted to come home?

 

Glad he's back in Superleague.  He was a really good player for the Dragons.
